The Greatest Love of all - Whitney Houston

Okay, so you probably have heard this song for the nth time. My mom used to sing this each time we have videoke sessions, "from then until now". I enjoy her singing this song because I really felt loved, the way a mom loves her kids. I truly like the lyrics of the song, especially when you're watching it in MTV or the like, and there are children in the background, playing, laughing, running around and enjoying every single minute while you are listening to the song.

The last phrase is also very catchy when it says "...find your strength in love..."
Yeah, with love, we can conquer all. We can only conquer everything if we have love and so we realize that we are strong because we have love. On the other hand, we love because we have the strength to fall-in love, or to fall-apart. So there goes the greatest advise a mom can give to her kids. Love! and the greatest love of all is happening to me... (I bet mom's greatest love of all is "me"). hahaha. But seriously, I love this song when my mom's singing it so better hear her sing!

Just imagine your mom saying those words to you, gently, full of compassion, ecouragement and love. That's how my mom sings this song... with feelings, not necessarily for me but for the entire family.

For your pleasure, here's the lyrics courtesy of http://www.lyrics007.com

I believe the children are our are future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be
Everybody searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone who fulfill my needs
A lonely place to be
So I learned to depend on me

Chorus:
I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone's shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I'll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

Chorus

And if by chance, that special place
That you've been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place
Find your strength in love
